    Bought 3 SLW pullers. This is my first time raising chickens though, and to me this one's comb is really red and large compared to my others. What do you think? [​IMG]

    I got them the week after mothers day, so about 4 or so months?

    Is that a dark brahma? I'd place my bets on about 25+ weeks, but will need a little back up there!?

    So SHE is about 19 weeks old. You'll probably get your first egg from her! Love her lacing!

    oh good!! I was hoping it was a She! Thank you! We live in the country and have guineas, but I wasn't really ready for a rooster. Looking forward to my first egg :)

    You definitely have a pullet. She should be laying soon!

    Pullet for sure. Judging by her comb/wattle development, I'd say that eggs are very close!
